Description

Dr. Charles F. Emery, Professor and Department Chair of Department of Psychology,  has announced Ken Fujita has been awarded the 2020 Faculty Mentoring Award from the OSU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. He was nominated by Laura Wallace  who highlighted Ken's commitment to community-building in his research group, his encouragement of networking among his mentees, and his promotion and facilitation of professional development. He is broadly interested in how motivation and cognition dynamically interact to influence evaluation, judgment, decision, and behavior. His most recent work examines the cognitive and motivational mechanisms that underlie self-control decisions and other self-regulatory phenomena. He is also interested in what motivates change at the individual-, group-, and system-level.
